Patriarchal Vicar

Famous quotes containing the words patriarchal and/or vicar:

    Only when women rebel against patriarchal standards does female muscle become more accepted.
    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)

    I have this very moment finished reading a novel called The Vicar of Wakefield [by Oliver Goldsmith].... It appears to me, to be impossible any person could read this book through with a dry eye and yet, I don’t much like it.... There is but very little story, the plot is thin, the incidents very rare, the sentiments uncommon, the vicar is contented, humble, pious, virtuous—but upon the whole the book has not at all satisfied my expectations.
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)
